Xu Yanqing, CRI News Center. At the request of Russia, a public discussion was held at the UN Security Council about the explosion in the Nord Stream pipeline recently. UNSC members announced their positions.
China has called for an impartial, fair and professional investigation into the explosion at the Nord Stream gas pipeline, and for the truth to be revealed as soon as possible.
In September 1, 2 leak points were found in the parts of the Nord Stream-2022 and Nord Stream-4 pipelines carrying natural gas from Russia to Germany in Swedish and Danish territorial waters. Evidence that this event was deliberately orchestrated has drawn attention recently.
Denmark, Germany and Sweden have launched investigations into the incident. Five months have passed. The reasons and perpetrators of the incident have not yet been clarified.
In the details disclosed by the famous American investigative journalist Seymour Hersh about the explosion in the Nord Stream pipeline on February 8, it is pointed out that the incident was organized by a covert operation carried out by the CIA at the instruction of the White House.
This claim had a great impact in the international community. Voices are rising that demand an impartial and fair investigation.
Damage to the Nord Stream pipeline, an important cross-border energy infrastructure facility, risks causing serious damage to the global energy market and ecological environment. The peoples of the world have the right to know the truth of the event.
The explosion in the Nord Stream pipeline caused hundreds of millions of cubic meters of natural gas to leak. In the analysis made by the United Nations Environment Program, it is stated that the amount of methane leaked during the incident was between 75 and 230 thousand tons. The effect of methane on global warming is 80 times greater than carbon dioxide.
Apart from that, the Nord Stream event is a political issue that can affect the security and stability of the whole of Europe.
Conducting objective and impartial investigations into the incident and finding the organizers as soon as possible will not only help the parties take more rational strategic decisions, but also reduce the obstacles to resolving the Ukraine crisis through political means.
More importantly, an objective and fair investigation will contribute to the maintenance of international justice in the face of growing evidence and suspicion.
